Although this isn't a true Japanese fabric (it is produced in India by an American company) I have decided to start offering it as an alternative to some of the more expensive and difficult to find Japanese yarn dyed shot cottons. I think that the color and hand of the fabric makes it also work well with vintage Japanese fabrics. It is a lighter weight so it would pair well with Olympus' kofu tsumugi fabrics. These are in available in wash-away sashiko samplers here:

When compared to the Olympus kofu fabrics the Peppered cottons have a bit more of a structured, uniform weave and no slubbing.

Washing instructions:
Machine wash color. No Chlorine bleach, Tumble dry low. Iron if necessary.

Please note that if you order a large number of yards that the shipping weight may be overestimated. I always refund shipping charge overages of $1.00 USD or more.

*I am always willing to provide more information or pictures regarding my fabrics or using/sewing these fabrics. Please do not hesitate to send me a convo if you have any questions.*

I believe that the pictures show a good representation of the fabric colors however, please remember that colors may look different on your monitor.
